Here are some photos from the trip we took to Bulgaria!
Family Kamenovi (except Kamen who is taking the photo)

Night of the Giant Zucchinis!!

Starting the "long march" to the Rila lakes (not to Galois theory :)

The trail marker's painted on the tree

The happy couple at the second Rila lake

Sisters Kamenovi at the second Rila lake

The fog descends (and kept haunting us throughout the weekend)

Caught between the sky and the water

The little waterfall is actually huge, but this is as close as we got

Spider, spider, spinning fast, in the forests and the grass (all apologies Blake)

There's another spiderweb hidden among the cotton flowers

Secret social lives of horses: mutual grooming

Finally we start our descent

The painted arcade

Three storks in one nest -- someone had triplets!

This village house has alot of . . . "character" :)

Every house hangs a lantern like this one

From ivy-covered halls to ivy-covered everything!
